I've talked about honey processed coffees before, but 'Red Honey', that's a new one.  The short answer is that this process will create a sweeter and more syrupy cup of coffee.  This El Salvador coffee is a perfect example of that.

The not that longer answer is about 75% of the mucilage is left on the bean during the drying process.  There are colors for various percentages and for whatever reason, red = 75%.

Tasting Notes

Syrupy and sweet, a coffee caramel treat, almond / grapes complete.

That's my El Salvador coffee Haiku.  The red honey process makes this coffee sweet like a perfect caramel.  However, as soon as you take a sip of the coffee,  you get a nice clean cup of toasted almonds.  Then in the finish it's like a sweet grape juiciness.  I know these descriptors seems almost contradictory.  Grape juiciness and syrupy sweetness aren't always compatible, but in this cup they complement each other perfectly.  It really is a coffee treat.

About The Farm / Origin

Loma La Gloria is located on the slopes of the San Salvador Volcano's crater known as El Boqueron. They are blessed with this location because of the micro-climate which includes Volcanic soil, cool nights, warm sun filtered through the shade trees and gentle rains. The farm goes from 1,200 meters up to 1,839 meters at the crater's rim. Anny Ruth Pimentel says her passion and love for coffee is her daily inspiration. She feels proud of the coffee beans she grows, mills and exports and enjoys being able to take care of every step of the process to assure the quality and traceability of the beans.

Damn Good Coffee

I am glad to have found this coffee purveyor. I wanted a little change and I have to tell you that the coffee is delicious and fresh. The price seems a bit higher than normal, but the shipping is included.

Every cup seems to a new flavor- an enjoyable flavor. I sure like the Ethiopia coffees always good and this one of my favorites.

Best customer service!

I purchased the sampler 2 pack and received the Kenya Gold and the Costa Rica which is a rich honey process ! They both are great.. Ground for my Kuerig

Very strong but not in flavor

Maybe I ordered the wrong coffee?
